To mark what would be the 67th birthday of reggae icon, Bob Marley, Digicel and the Bob Marley Foundation have come together for a second year running to honor the legend with a series of celebratory activities throughout the month of February.

Kicking off the month-long celebration will be a free family concert at Emancipation Park on Sunday.

The concert will feature musical tributes to the reggae legend from artists such as Ky-Mani Marley, Freddie McGregor, Judy Mowatt, Protoje, Alaine, Cocoa Tea, Romain Virgo and as well as performances from Digicel Brand Ambassadors, I-Octane and Jermaine Edwards.

Other performances will feature the Edna Manley School of Music, Uprising Roots Band and Chronixxx.

According to Shelly-Ann Curran, Digicel’s senior sponsorships and activations manager, while last year was very successful, this year is expected to be even better.

Jacqueline Lynch-Stewart, general manager of the Bob Marley Foundation and Museum, in speaking on the partnership, said that, “the Bob Marley Foundation is delighted to once again partner with Digicel to celebrate and honor the king of reggae’s ‘earthday’ this year.”

Early-morning celebration

This year, the reggae legend would have been 67 and the celebrations are being held under the theme ‘We Jah People Can Make It Work’.

Digicel will also be participating in the birthday celebrations of Bob Marley on Monday at the Bob Marley Museum, starting with an early-morning celebration at 56 Hope Road followed by a grand party that evening. The celebration will culminate in the annual One Love Bob Marley Football competition between masters and celebrities to raise funds for charity.

Digicel customers will also be able to purchase Bob Marley songs as their InTunes RingBack tone as well as selected images of Bob Marley as wallpaper.
